Integrating linear actuators into machinery requires skilled technicians and engineers that understand the process. PEKO helps integrate linear actuators into machines and electro-mechanical assemblies daily. Our engineering team can assist with selecting, installing, and testing linear actuators for a wide range of industrial systems.
What Is A Linear Actuator?
A linear actuator is a device that converts the rotational motion of an AC or DC motor into linear motion. This linear motion can be used to open and close valves, lift and lower loads, and move other components in a machine. Linear actuators are often used in conjunction with valves. For example, a linear actuator can be used to open and close a valve, which allows fluid to flow through a pipe. Linear actuators can also be used to control the position of a valve. This is important because it ensures that the valve is properly aligned with the rest of the piping system.
Factors to Consider When Selecting
There are many different types of linear actuators available on the market. The type of linear actuator that you choose will depend on your application requirements. Some factors that you will need to consider include the maximum load capacity, the stroke length, and the operating voltage.
